Crunchyroll has announced that episodes nine through twelve of the NieR:Automata Ver 1.1a anime will be available on their service starting July 23, 2023. While Japanese broadcast stations previously confirmed these episodes’ arrival on that same date, Crunchyroll was up in the air. So, it’s neat to finally have clarity.
For those unaware, the anime was delayed in March 2023 due to COVID-19. The team has reiterated apologies regarding the inconsistent episode releases of this series.
In case you missed it, official mobile wallpapers of the anime have been shared depicting several characters as adorable chibis.

NieR:Automata The End of YoRHa Edition is now available for Nintendo Switch worldwide. The first iteration of the game, simply NieR:Automata, is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox, and PC, with the Xbox version containing the colosseum DLC sans extra purchases.
The Switch version has a physical release with a reversible cover, and it is not a Cloud version. It includes all existing DLC and new NieR Replicant & Re[in]carnation costumes.
NieR:Automata was initially released in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PC, with an Xbox One release in 2018. The game follows characters named 2B and 9S, who are agents of Yorha, an organization tasked with various combative and information-gathering missions. This entry became highly popularized for its storytelling and characters in a fusion of action, exploration, and shmup elements.
